11.05.07 - Flynn shows promise

After a rather disappointing début in Top Methanol Dragster at Easter, Derek Flynn of Eurodragster.com News sponsor Gold RV says that it was great to make some excellent progress at Shakespeare County Raceway, where he got his TMD licence at the weekend.

"Thanks to the efforts of my team we knocked off nearly a second from our previous times with our new car and we were pleased to get licenced", says Derek. "I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Shakespeare County Raceway for helping us to make it happen, from the back room staff to everyone of the track crew who made sure we had the best possible opportunity to put in some good passes. We took it easy to start with and slowly increased the shift RPM and fuel settings and I am sure if it were not for a slight smattering of rain before our last pass on Sunday we would have achieved our first 200 mph pass at SCR Alas it was not meant to be as I had to lift as I was rather sideways by the eighth, but the data to that point was most promising, especially as Tog reckoned we were rather sideways from the launch.

"Thanks again to Jerry, Richard, Bruno and all the SCR crew. We had a great weekend. Unfortunately due to a small split in the sidewall of one of our front tyres and a small problem with the rings on #2 cylinder we had already decided to pack up on the Sunday night, before the rain really spoiled things, but up 'til then I thought it was a great meeting and we are really looking forward to achieving that 200+ mph in the Gold RV lane some time soon."
